Forests feature in many of our legends and folktales.
These reflect the way people regarded the forests
hundreds or even thousands of years ago. To them,
the forests were barriers and dark places full
of danger. The best thing to do with a forest was
to get rid of it.
The book ends by outlining the present condition of the world's forests and their likely future. This is good, for the forests are now expanding.
The book has 216 pages, including two pages of tables, two pages of further reading and web sites, and seven pages of index.
